Supported Platforms

Following platforms are supported by Electron:


Only 64bit binaries are provided for macOS, and the minimum macOS version supported is macOS 10.9.


Windows 7 and later are supported, older operating systems are not supported (and do not work).

Both ia32 (x86) and x64 (amd64) binaries are provided for Windows. Please note, the ARM version of Windows is not supported for now.


The prebuilt ia32 (i686) and x64 (amd64) binaries of Electron are built on Ubuntu 12.04, the armv7l binary is built against ARM v7 with hard-float ABI and NEON for Debian Wheezy.

Until the release of Electron 2.0, Electron will also continue to release the armv7l binary with a simple arm suffix. Both binaries are identical.

Whether the prebuilt binary can run on a distribution depends on whether the distribution includes the libraries that Electron is linked to on the building platform, so only Ubuntu 12.04 is guaranteed to work, but following platforms are also verified to be able to run the prebuilt binaries of Electron:

  • Ubuntu 12.04 and later
  • Fedora 21
  • Debian 8
